The S&P BSE Sensex fell sharply by 248 points on Thursday, declining to the levels not seen in more than a month, as investors remained nervous ahead of counting for the Bihar assembly elections on 8 November.The Sensex closed at 26,304 points, down 0.94%, while the 50-share Nifty fell 85 points, or 1.05%, to end at 7,955.”Failure to sustain above 8,100 has reinforced weakness across the board. Selling pressure was felt across sectors with deterioration of market breadth, which is a cause of concern. Traders are advised to be cautious and selective in their stock selection even though valuations may seem relatively attractive,” said Amar Ambani, Head of Research, IIFL.The five-phase Bihar election, which ended on 5 November, is being seen as a referendum for the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. While some exit poll surveys are predicting a win for the NDA, others are saying that the mahagathbandan led by JD (U) could win by a slender margin due to the effective campaign by incumbent chief minister and JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar. The fairly reliable of all the exit polls – Today’s Chanakya – has given the BJP-led NDA a clear majority of 155 seats and 85 to the Mahagathbandan (Grand Alliance).”Market is falling in anxiety to the Bihar exit poll prediction today. Bihar has 16 Rajya Sabha seats of which only 5 seats will retire in 2016 and this will not having any material impact on ruling government’s majority. This is unlikely to revamp the central governments capex of reforms going forward but only a sentimental impact in the near-term,” Vinod Nair, Head-Fundamental Research, Geojit BNP Paribas Financial Services, told Business Standard.The sell-off was also led by growing hints over interest rate hike by the US central bank, which is a major negative for emerging markets like India.In her Congressional testimony, the US Federal Reserve chairperson Janet Yellen on Wednesday hinted at monetary tightening next month.”Following the relatively hawkish October FOMC statement and yesterday’s signals from Fed Chair Yellen and her two top lieutenants Fischer and Dudley reinforcing expectations of a December rate hike, the threshold for Fed lift-off seems rather low,” said Nordea Markets in a note.Renewed concerns over the US Fed rate hike in December have impacted global markets, with China’s Shanghai Composite index and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng falling by 0.25% and 0.7%, respectively.All the BSE sectoral indices ended lower, with Realty, Healtcare, Bankex and IT as the top losers.Reliance Capital (up 1.3%), NTPC (up 0.7%), Hero Motocorp (up 0.7%), ITC (up 0.4%) and Hindustan Unilever (up 0.2%) were the top gainers among the Sensex stocks, while DLF (down 5.1%), Tata Steel (down 4.2%), BHEL (down 3.3%), Bharti Airtel (down 2.8%) and SBI (down 2.1%) ended as biggest losers.On the commodities front, gold prices fell to Rs 180 to Rs 26,250 per 10 gram on the back of firmer US dollar. Silver prices also dropped by Rs 320 to Rs 35,750 per kg.Today’s Chanakya
Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir. File PhotoBNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Thursday thanked the election commission for ‘ensuing justice’ as most of their aspirants whose nominations had been declared illegal got back their candidatures through appeals, reports UNB.Taking to reporters at BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office, he also hoped that their chairperson’s nomination will be declared valid if the commission ensures justice to her.“We think the declaration of most of our candidates valid is our victory. We also hope our leader Khaleda Zia will also be declared a legal candidate if justice is ensured,” he said.Fakhrul said the returning officers declared illegal the nominations of many of our candidates but most of them were considered as legal runners through the election commission hearing. “So, I thank the election commission.”He alleged that the returning officers declared illegal most of their candidates’ nominations as they had to obey the government order and they could not ensure justice in many cases for that reason.Replying to a question, Fakhrul said they may announce a partial list of their final candidates for different constituencies after 8pm today.He alleged that the government, being afraid of defeat, is now using state machineries to influence the election.The BNP leader also alleged that law enforcers continued the arrest of their leaders and activists hampering their organisational activities.He urged the government and the election commission to stop arresting opposition activists and create a proper election atmosphere so that all the parties can exercise their democratic rights.
Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Could your business be the next one hit by hackers hungry for passwords?After non-stop news of hacker break-ins at LinkedIn, eHarmony and other online sites resulting in millions of leaked passwords, you may be wondering if your business is any better prepared or protected. It’s a good question, given the risks. Stolen passwords that give intruders access to your systems can lead to costly scams and fraud, wreck your company’s reputation, prompt customer defections and spawn significant cleanup costs.Few companies store passwords properly, even though doing so usually isn’t difficult, security experts say. Most Web developers are not schooled in current best practices and fail to implement sufficiently strong security technologies. Often, they neglect security or plan to add it later, says Aleksandr Yampolskiy, chief technology officer at New York-based Cinchcast, a webcasting startup, and former head of security at Gilt Groupe, a luxury shopping site. “The problem is later almost never comes,” he says.If a weak password system is put in place early in a company’s life, it often remains untouched as the company grows into, say, a social-networking juggernaut. By then, the company’s technology infrastructure has become more complex and costly to retrofit, leading to still more delays.”Hopefully new companies starting out now will take a lesson from LinkedIn, and they’ll build their password storage correctly,” says Chris Wysopal, chief technology officer at Veracode, a Burlington, Mass., Web security firm.Related: Free Tools for Improving Online SecurityLuckily, being an entrepreneur has advantages if you need to make password storage more secure. The task is “easier for small companies because they have less complex systems, they have less users to worry about,” says Johannes B. Ullrich, chief research officer at the SANS Technology Institute, a network-security training provider. Startups with a clean slate can accomplish it in five minutes.Here are some precautions you can take to fortify your company against password thieves:Secure your website.Most password thefts begin with an attack on the victim company’s website. Have your site checked by a Web security expert for software vulnerabilities and coding errors that create pathways to your password database, or scan it for flaws yourself and fix anything amiss.Store passwords safely.Should a hacker get into your site, your best defense is passwords that are strongly encrypted so that cracking them would be painfully slow or nearly impossible, Ullrich says. Companies should “hash” passwords using a strong encryption technology, or mash it with an algorithm, and store only the resulting “hashed” version. During that process, they should also add “salt,” or additional random data, to each password to further complicate efforts to crack them. It also helps to require users to set long and complex passwords, which can be significantly more difficult to guess than short or common passwords.Unfortunately, many companies hash passwords using obsolete encryption technologies, such as SHA-1 from the 1970s. (LinkedIn used SHA-1 without salt.) SHA-1, MD5 and other still popular technologies were cracked by hackers long ago and offer little protection, experts say.Related: Three Tech Tools for Keeping Sensitive Business Data SafeCompanies ought to be using encryption methods designed for passwords, such as the free open source Bcrypt, which runs passwords through an encryption algorithm many times so that cracking them can literally take years. While this can be time consuming, it only has to be done when a user creates or changes a password.Consider two-factor authentication. Some people argue that passwords have had their day and simply need to be replaced with something stronger. That something is “two-factor authentication,” which requires something you know (a password) and something you have in your possession. The second factor is often a device that provides a difficult-to-steal, one-time code that users enter along with their password.If your passwords unlock particularly sensitive information, you may want to consider putting two-factor authentication in place, Wysopal says.Thanks to Google, implementing two-factor authentication has gotten a lot easier for small companies in recent years. Google allows businesses to use OpenID to connect to its systems for free for authentication, which can include “2-step verification” with a text message to a smartphone. Or companies could implement this two-factor authentication themselves using the open source Google Authenticator.Related: How to Repair a Damaged Reputation OnlinePut it in writing and verify.When hiring a Web developer, include password security in your requirements so the developer will have to fix any problems. Ullrich suggests going further and requiring your developer to commit to addressing the top 10 Web application security risks identified by the non-profit group OWASP, which include insecure password storage.Also, make sure any third-party software you use, such as Web forms and content management systems, has a secure password arrangement. Hire a security expert, even if for a day, to review your password system and other site security measures and make sure they’re safe and sound.
